The famous cricket site has claimed that off spinner has revealed that he “declined an offer to captain the T20 side because he wanted to be “relaxed” about his cricket.”
In an interview with ESPNcricinfo, Ajmal showed his indifference from the captaincy, which is still vacant after the stepping down of Muhammad Hafeez after Pakistan team didn’t manage to get place in the semi final.
“I don’t want to put myself forward for captaincy. I think I am better as a team player. I do think about being captain of Pakistan, but I am reluctant too,” Ajmal has been quoted by the site.
“Captaincy in Pakistan is not easy. The captain ends up being blamed for anything that goes wrong. Just look at Mohammad Hafeez. He resigned after our exit from this year’s World T20. Why? It’s because all the blame was being dumped on him. I have been approached for captaincy but I declined. I want to be relaxed about my cricket. God has blessed me with a sunny disposition and I want to keep it that way.”
